Dr. Fauci wonders why forced masking is viewed as assault on freedom

By Harold Hutchison

Dr. Anthony Fauci seemed bewildered that forced masking was seen as an assault on freedom during a Tuesday interview.

“When you tell people they need to mask in an indoor congregate setting, when you’re in a zone that has a high dynamic of infection, and that is looked up by a lot of people, not everybody, as an encroachment on your freedom, we’ve never had that before,” Fauci, the top medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said while receiving an award from the Seattle Mariners. “I mean, it’s almost inexplicable.”

“It’s less about mandates on the plane than it is about who has the right and the authority and the capability of making public health decisions,” Fauci told Fox News host Neil Cavuto. “And I believe that the Department of Justice is operating on the principle that decisions that are public health decisions belong with the public health agency — in this case, the CDC.”

Fans at Tuesday’s Mariners game booed Fauci when he was presented with the Hutch Award by the team, with one fan yelling “You’re going to miss this like you did the pandemic, loser!”


Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), has come under fire for reports that his agency funded gain-of-function research in Wuhan, China, where COVID-19 originated. He also supported an appeal of an injunction against a mask mandate in June.

“The mandate has been pulled back on the decision of the court, but that does not change the recommendation of the CDC, Neil, or my own personal preference,” Fauci said.

Fauci did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.

  1. If Dr. Fauci doesn’t understand what’s wrong with forcing medical treatments or measures, then perhaps he should go back to school and learn about eugenics and how the Third Reich was primarily a biomedical program to purify the race and establish breathing room for the select.

    Dr. Fauci might want to consider that our Constitution is designed to prevent factions from gaining power, yet a loophole instigated in the 1905 Jacobson decision led to a slippery slope of ‘medical necessity’ allowing the medical profession to, in essence, act as an unchecked faction. In recent years, this faction gained control over large aspects of political life and installed what can only be called tyrannical measures over supposedly free citizens supposedly protected from factions, and in some places this faction maintains unelected and dictatorial power over citizens.

    The one way that tyranny can be installed in America is through the concept of ‘medical necessity.’ This is why we must never allow medical necessity to dictate any aspect of our lives; the evils of not allowing medical mandates is far overshadowed by the evils of allowing them, and our own eugenics policies as well as those of the Third Reich should be proof enough of that.

    Dr. Fauci once said he doesn’t care about freedom. This is exactly why the medical profession should never dictate public policy.

  2. Will fauci be requiring butt masks for gays to stop the spread of monkey pox.. how about a mask for donkey pox the greatest threat to the nation..

  3. Everyone should take the time and learn all they can about Dr. Fauci, Agenda 2021, and Agenda 2030 for starters. We all could have a much more enlightened conversation with Dr. Fauci, Joe Biden, Phil Scott, Mark Levine, and people of their ilk.

  4. No one elected Anthony Fauci jack —-,we used to have two ways to deal with little tin pot tyrants, tar,feathers and a rail or a section of hemp, both applications kept the tyrants in check.

    Mr. Dr. Franklin said something that would go right over little Anthony’s head.

    “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” Benjamin Franklin
